The photos taken used both natural and artificial light, and are textural, abstract and moody.  Some of these are better at demonstrating the loneliness of being awake when others are not, though they show little of the pain here.

Initial experimentation into developing work inspired by our relationships with sleep was inspired by the insomnia photographs of Tracey Emin (see critical analysis), and the Louise Bourgeois Insomnia drawings, both of which demonstrated the isolation of not sleeping.   

To attempt to demonstrate the neurological and psychological elements of sleep disruption quick iPhone snaps were taken from beneath the covers in bed, both at night (between 3 and 5am) and in the morning.
